  • VHS - Please assess this article for "B" grade. I've made some significant additions and changes. I think the article fulfills the criteria as a "B" article. Thank you! Groink (talk) 08:00, 7 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Millenniata - Please assess this article for "B" grade. I rewrote it as NPoV. I believe the company itself is only notable for the M-DISC technology (a type of specialty DVD-R), but I'm not sure of the best way to handle that. Advice appreciated! —Hobart (talk) 01:44, 26 September 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I noticed that in Talk:Fucking Machines that this unfortunate article has a Good Article status from this WikiProject. This status needs to be reconsidered and likely removed. Rlsheehan (talk) 19:39, 8 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
